Gorgol Company constantly expands its export and from March 2019 Gorgol’s wooden hair brushes will be available for customers in USA and Canada at TJX family stores: T.J.MAXX, Marshalls, Winners, Homesense and Marshalls Canada.
Gorgol is the largest Polish producer of wooden brushes with over 40 years of experience in brush production and it’s still a family owned company with production plant located in Częstochowa, Poland.
Piotr Makowski, export manager presents us a short background of current expansion:
The story of entering American and Canadian markets goes back to the year 2017 when during “Cosmoprof” in Bologna I met a “beauty buyer” who was responsible for hair brushes at TJX Europe. We had a quite short conversation at our booth and decided that we should take a chance to cooperate together.
After exchanging couple of emails I invited the buyer to visit our production plant in Częstochowa to discuss details and choose appropriate collection of brushes to be offered at T.K. MAXX stores in Europe. In September 2017 the first collection of Gorgol’s hair brushes showed up at stores in Europe.
After I established successful cooperation and business relationship with European buyer I asked for contact details and recommendation to buyer who was responsible for Northern American markets. We’ve had already known the business model of TJX so I was able to prepare the appropriate offer for our hair brushes that was accepted.The negotiations with the buyer didn’t take that long and went quite smooth. After few weeks we received the first purchase order which was shipped in the end of January to USA and Canada.
In 2019 Gorgol Company is planning to develop cooperation with TJX family and the next natural step would be entering Australian market at T.K.MAXX stores.
